B

Reprocessed from scratch, with a different handling of the color balance.

C

I healed some black rings around a few stars that were bothering me.

D

I brightened the dim nebulosity a bit and adjusted the color balance. (The previous versions had too much of a blue cast.)

E

I raised the black point a tad.

F

Brightened some of the nebulosity.

G

One last tweak: I dimmed the overall image a tad.
